Visited here on a football weekend as something to do before an 8 PM OSU game. Nice well-marked trails. Plenty of area for picnics and gatherings available. Convenient location off of I-270.

Love to walk the trails here. Well designated and roomy enough to walk in groups. Different distances makes it work depending on the time you have. The park is wonderful and great for families. Playground is enjoyed by all ages.

I am a member of a walking group and we meet every Tuesday for walking. Sharon Wood Metro Park is popular and busy even in the evenings. Although I only use the walking trail, there are many activities for all ages.

I enjoy getting to Sharon Woods Metro Park to take advantage of the walking trail. It's a great walk through a beautiful wooded area.

This park is lovely. It is busy and close to a lot of activity, but it has a serene atmosphere. The trails are wonderful. There are lakes, playgrounds, and lots of wild life to experience. It is a lot of fun, relaxing and refreshing. This park is really a gem in this community.

I will admit that Sharon woods is not my favorite of the Franklin County Metro Parks, but it is an enjoyable park to visit. The fall color of course if beautiful. I recommend walking along the lake, or the Spring Creek trail.

This urban park will almost make you forget you are in the city. There is a 3 mile multi-use trail that is very quiet (except one section long the highway). I made it here every night after dinner during a week long business trip.

Sharon Woods has walking, biking and running trails. It has several picnic shelters and playgrounds. One of the highlights is the fishing pond for children. They will even provide fishing polls if you do not have them. It is an all around park with sledding and ice skating in the Winter. It is a wonderful park in the Metropolitan Park... More

Great park to take a walk or have a cookout with the family. Walk or ride a bike on the trail and possibly see a few deer.
